This is a splendid Brunello, showing extraordinary purity of sangiovese character. Cherry and floral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with incredibly integrated tannins that seem like they are not there. But they are and are comprehensive on the palate. Great depth and agility. Just floats on the palate. Magic carpet. Drinkable, to enjoy the magic, but needs three or four years to come around. - James Suckling

The Giodo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a real stunner with a tight, finely knit texture that transcends and ultimately unites both the bouquet and the mouthfeel, putting them on an even playing field. This gives the wine a broad sense of unity and wholeness that is the key to withstanding the aging process one would expect to submit this bottle to. At this young stage, Giodo's Brunello reveals blue flowers, wild berry, camphor ash and delicate spice. This wine shows a compressed sense of intensity that expands quickly after you lift the proverbial lid off the box. As it breathes in air and takes on more volume, it also leaves a deeper impression on your nose and palate. It closes with a simple note of sweet cherry that makes for a perfect postscript. Some 10,000 bottles were released in January 2020. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

Carlo Ferrini is one of the most talented winemaker in Italy and Giodo is his own boutique winery of 2,5ha in Montalcino. His reputation for elegant wines is not misplaced as he should be considered a kind of master of tannins, his hobby horse. The vines are 18 years old now. The yields at about 50q/ha are the perfect balance for Montalcino, combining concentration and the Mediterranean climate of the region. The wine is deep ruby, with great definition and purity of raspberry fruit; layered with potpourri and smoky woodland notes. Vibrant acidity with sifted silky tannins of great weight at the centre palate will keep it fresh for long ageing and development of greater complexity. - Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter

Situated in the south, between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Sant’Antimo, winemaker Carlo Ferrini established the now 6-hectare Giodo estate in 2002. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino was aged for 30 months in large French oak, followed by resting in concrete vats before bottling. Forward and polished aromatics of primary black cherry fruit, vanilla, sweet licorice, and crushed lavender are followed by an approachable palate, with just ripe plum, baking spice, and fresh earth. The tannins are supple and round, balanced with refreshing acidity without being austere. This is a very pretty wine that will cast a large net for enjoyment as there is purity matched with ease. I love this for its freshness now or enjoy over the next ten years. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino explodes from the glass with a dramatic display of sweet cherries, exotic spice and cedar shavings, evolving and gaining further depths as its fruit morphs more toward ripe strawberry, complicated by wild herbs and hints of undergrowth. On the palate, the 2015 is soft yet so tense and poised, showing incredible purity through the brilliant flavors of mineral-tinged red berries and savory spices. The finish is long, feminine and youthfully structured, still resonating on ripeness and giving pleasure today, yet balanced to evolve for a decade or more in the cellar. - Eric Guido, Vinous Media

Cherry, strawberry, tobacco and iron flavors are gently shaded by new oak, imparting vanilla and toasty spice accents. Elegant overall, with bright acidity and refined tannins. Best from 2023 through 2038. 835 cases made, 300 cases imported. -Wine Spectator

Tasted blind. Lustrous mid ruby. Shy, nutty oak notes over cherry fruit and still a tiny bit reductive. Supple and generous, lively sour-cherry fruit with a hint of gingerbread and chewy tannins on the finish. Quite a charmer but with real depth. - Jancis Robinson
